is a return to a kind of second world war system of stereotypes and cliches and national hatred. whereas the european project was supposed to put that to rest once and for all and bring european peoples together as europeans, rather than as greeks and germans or whatever. ♪ rule, britannia! ♪ britannia rule the waves... >> the eurozone crisis has done so much to undo the european project and perhaps that will be its saddest legacy. >> should these challenges to unification prove too great, what would a collapse of the euro mean? >> in the same way in which the collapse of lehman implied global shocks, a dissolve in the situation in the eurozone is going to impact the united states, china and many other parts of the world in a way that could be very severe and very extreme. >> you could break up in a neatly packaged way, very difficult, or you could break up messily, more likely. if the euro breaks up messily, that again is going to be a tremendous shock to the entire world financial system and we are still the biggest players in the world financial system. so we will not be immune to
, we'll still be kicking cans down the road, use whatever cliches you want. there's a bit of momentum finally in the right direction. there's economic momentum in the u.s. that will reduce some of the political pressure. the u.s. isn't europe and a deal isn't as urgent and won't be until 2013, but i think a little less polarized than it has been in obama's first term. >> on that optimistic note, thank you, all. we look forward -- it's a good way to say happy 2013. we will be back. ...and down. just use your maxperks card and get a case of x-9 paper for only 1-cent after maxperks rewards. find thousands of big deals now... ...at officemax. sfx- "sounds of african drum and flute" look who's back. again? it's embarrassing it's embarrassing! we can see you carl. we can totally see you. come on you're better than this...all that prowling around. yeah, you're the king of the jungle. have you thought about going vegan carl? hahaha!! you know folks who save hundreds of dollars by switching to geico sure are happy. how happy are they jimmy? happier than antelope with night-vision goggles. nice
. not going to use that cliche, not going to say it that's because it was a fake crisis as the "wall street journal" says today in its lead editorial. the deal congress struck last night could have been done last august. but the politicians in both parties wanted to posture it. setting up phony scenarios for their own personal enaggrandizement. here is really what's going on. president obama has succeeded in raising taxes on every working american. every one of us. those who are doing well will now pay close to 50% income to the feds. those making below $400,000 a year will pay a variety of new obama care taxes and see a 2 percentage point rise in their social security payment. everybody gets hit. if you invest, you will be paying about 9 percentage points more in capital gains and tax. if you die and your estate is worth more than 5 million bucks you will pay 40% of death tax to the feds. president obama is not finished. he wants more from the affluent. >> we can't simply cut our way to prosperity. cutting spending has to go hand in hand with further reforms to our tax code. so that the we
is as a ocd self editor is how often really cliches will show up. and to me that is something i think if you just took even a mediocre speech, trimmed out the troeps, the comforting words, you know, then, you know, suddenly the thing, there are not enough words. you have to substitute in. maybe those are more truthful. but like in orwell's politics in language, certain are markers for insincerity and for an agenda. >> the word frankly, for instance. which is my favorite. >> honestly. >> yeah. >> the sort of familiar catch phrases you almost don't even read in a speech anymore. but i think what you notice in that clip is there was nothing. there was literally not a single one of those that was an originality of an expression and like that goosebumps the quickness with which a certain rhetorical trope came home. wow, that was perfect. that was fast. you know, that is something -- that's hard to talk about, i suppose. but language is power. and, you know, in that, you can really see it. >> he said that obviously he gave that speech after the reverend wright stuff blew up. one of the things that
of a job than in a job. and this notion of a lost generation, it sounds like a cliche. it's a reality because everything shows that if at the beginning of your professional career you're out of the jobs market six months to a year, you have a difficult time getting back in again. that is the situation that one-third of the unemployment in europe face. >> why do you think they've been comfortable with the price? >> the question i most free throwly get asked about youth unemployment, if it's going to create social instability, are we going to see a revolution crossing the mediterranean? and my answer to that is if you have 55%, 65% of young people out of work in your country, you have a social problem, you have a social stability threat. let's not wait to get to the edge of the abyss in those terms to act. the real trigger for action should be that there's a massive waste of economic resources and human rights. for the moment to move actually was yet yesterday. but let's do it now. >> we saw composite pmi today. there's one company that stood out, france. much weaker than expected. carl
? there was no guarantee we were going to defeat hitler or that britain was going to survive. it has become a cliche, but it has not been said here tonight, so i will be the one to say. my favorite quote from winston churchill, the americans can always be. -- depended on to do the right thing, after they had exhausted every other possibility. the demographics are irreversible and will ultimately drive the right and the left to the reality that we have to make some kind of changes. >> you are our realist. how do you think this ends? >> of course, the honest answer is i don't know. what i worry about, and i really appreciate the reminder of history, because i think is really important, and we forget history too often. what i worry about is the trust deficit. if you look at every institution, business, congress, sports figures, the church -- it doesn't matter what it is. no one trusts the institutions that operate in our country. and congress is not doing so well. >> why does that matter? it matters because, for a society to be vibrant and grow and take risks and innovate, we not only need to like each
of the most overused played out, annoying cliche phrases in the history of words. a list has been reloosed by lake superior state university of phrases from 2012 that should be banned from the english language. fiscal cliff, good luck on that. spoiler alert. bucket list, trending. and yolo, the acrow number meaning -- i never heard that. >> steve: my kids say that all the time. >> brian: what does it mean? >> steve: you only live once. yolo. >> brian: really? ban ago phrase i never heard. >> steve: 12 minutes after the top of the hour on this tuesday. coming up, the fiscal cliff, i know we're -- we're supposed to stop using the word. not only the only word on americans' minds, today more. today we'll meet a guy who says he may have to lay off workers because of the obama taxes. >> brian: will lawmakers say more money in their paychecks? i heard this deal kills that raise 9d ad [ male announcer ] coughequence™ #8. waking the baby.

's make an clich if you don't mind. >> kneal franklin, director of law enforcement in prohibition. we hear a lot about leadership. steve said something about leadership and since you talked about this as we have no leadership there is this an opportunity for the president, and what is the president's latitude? i know the executive branch enforcement but what is the president's latitude, and what can he do, what can the white house do and what should he do? i'm hoping these answers get to him. >> let's go to the gentleman. we also have a couple tweets. >> i'm with the governing magazine. i want to go back to the broad federalism issue which i talked to several people that said as much as jonathan, that between gay marriage, the affordable care act and marijuana were kind of redefining federalism in a lot of ways or we could be. so i wanted to ask you and i know this is intentional, but what are the potential ramifications for the system of government depending on how the various the dates are put out? >> i love how we saved a little questions for the end. >> ashley from l.a. is asking how m
